Besides the dress, I think one of the most important wedding decisions is the wedding cake. Everyone wants to see it. Everyone wants to taste it. Everyone wants to watch the bride and groom smoosh it into each other’s faces.
When my daughter asked me to make her wedding cake, I told her yes, but with conditions. (Not like I was busy with every other detail of the big day….) First condition was that it all had to be one flavor of cake and frosting, white. I didn’t have time for 4 different cakes with 4 different frostings!!! The second condition was that we had to come up with a way to decorate it that was quick and simple.
So how much cake did I end up making? The cake was 4 double layered cakes: 15 inch on bottom, then 12 inch, then 9 inch and finally a 6 inch on top for the bride and groom. For 150 people, there was plenty of cake and we brought home about half of the bottom 15 inch layer.
So where did I get all my cake making and decorating supplies? Amazon. The cake pans, the cardboard discs under each layer, the rhinestone banding, the snowflake brooch and the clear decorating sugar crystals all came from Amazon. I live in the middle of nowhere, so Amazon was my cake supply store!
The cake was both beautiful and delicious! You did a marvelous job!! And ps it was fun watching Tori smash it in Alex’s face!

This is so beautiful in its simplicity! I love using fondant!
Where can I find the recipe for the cake?
Thanks for your question Rob but that is one recipe I don’t publish. I’m sorry.
How early in advance can I assemble the cake? I’d like to have it finished in the fridge at least two if not three days before, but I don’t want to dry out the cake! Thanks!
If you are covering your cake in fondant, it will be fine for a few days because the fondant does a great job protecting the cake from air. I would be cautious with fondant in the fridge because it can make it a bit moist.
Hi, that looks wonderful. I was wondering about the rhinestones. My bride to be just showed me some and i was wondering if yours was edible? Could i make an edible kind in isomalt? They want everything edible. Thanks!
Thanks for your question Melanie. Mine were not edible. I know you can make some with isomalt but I have never done that before. Good luck!
